In 2024, Yaron Deutsch is part of "Interfinity" with "Nikel" (Swiss Music Prize). They explore "techno" in classical music, with performances at St. Paul's Church and Nordstern.
The well-known electric guitarist and HSM professor Yaron Deutsch and his ensemble "Nikel" (winner of the prestigious Swiss Music Prize in 2023) are taking part in various projects as "artists in residence" as part of "Interfinity" 2024. In "God is a DJ", the quartet is taking part in a three-part series that looks at the "techno" scene from the perspective of classical contemporary music. Before the turn of the millennium, disco developed into a substitute church in the scene and techno became a "religion". Away from society, people partied wildly in forests and at outdoor festivals. We follow in their footsteps and play in churches, nature and clubs.
After the opening in St. Paul's Church with Yaron Deutsch and organist Klaus Lang, "Nikel" plays "Bright Darkness" by Klaus Lang on the roof top of the Nordstern (in bad weather: on the middle deck) as the sun sets. In the "belly" of the Nordstern, sound artist and HSM professor Svetlana Maras ends the series with electronic music, accompanied by a light show (designed by Kathrin Mast a.k.a. "Anka"). Yaron Deutsch will play works from Steve Reich to Luigi Billone; they will improvise together.
